Things to do in the Spring

I enjoy spring because the seasons are not as distinct in Brazil as they are in the US. I’m amazed to see the transformation that takes place in the spring; it’s like nature is being reborn. The sun shines and the temperature rises, the trees start to release buds, plants bloom, the birds sing, and some animals wake up from hibernation. I also think this awakening phase excites us!

I was wondering how to take advantage of all this…that’s when the idea for this post came. I did some research to see what people recommend doing in the spring so that you and I can make the most out of it!

Here’s what we can do 👇

 🌻 Take advantage of nature to:

  • Watch the sunrise and/or the sunset
  • Watch the trees sprout and other plants bloom
  • Watch bumblebees at work in a garden
  • Watch the birds
  • Watch the clouds
  • Take pictures
  • Go to a park
  • Go to an arboretum
  • Go hiking
  • Climb a tree
  • Walk or run barefoot on the grass
  • Hang and lay down in a hammock between the trees
  • Feed the ducks
  • Smell the flowers (If you don’t have a pollen allergy and if the flowers don’t have insects. Just saying!)
  • Pick up a bouquet of fresh flowers

🌻 Take advantage of the weather to:

  • Listen to the rain
  • Seek out a rainbow
  • Play in the rain
  • Cultivate a garden with herbs and flowers (it can also be done in pots)
  • Open the windows and let the spring breeze in
  • Do “spring cleaning” (declutter and deep clean)
  • Sort out your spring wardrobe
  • Play a sport you like
  • Ride a bike
  • Have dinner outside
  • Read a book outside
  • Study/do homework outside

🌻 Take advantage of food to:

  • Try a new fruit
  • Pick strawberries
  • Bake a seasonal pie

🌻 Take advantage of your abilities to:

  • Make clay pots and paint them
  • Make and fly a kite
  • Draw nature
  • Learn a new skill

🌻 Take advantage of the events to:

  • Go to art shows and festivals
  • Go to music festivals
  • Go to food festivals
  • Go to a garage sale
  • Attend the opening day of a baseball game
  • Attend the spring program in the library

🌻 Take advantage of your family and/or friends to:

  • Go to an egg hunt
  • Take a trip
  • Have a picnic
  • Do things that have already been mentioned above with them!

I think we have a lot to fill one spring, don’t you think? I believe these cater to different personalities, from those who like to go out and enjoy nature to those who prefer a quieter, indoor routine. 

One last tip: enjoy yourself! I know things are busy, but take time to enjoy the season and renew your energy.

Happy Spring-ing and see you in the next post!

I really like Spring! I have so many more colors to camouflage myself with!
